Top 10 Most Beautiful Asian Countries

The Top Ten
1 Philippines The Philippines, officially the Republic of the Philippines, is an archipelagic country in Southeast Asia. It is situated in the western Pacific Ocean and consists of around 7,641 islands that are broadly categorized under three main geographical divisions from north to south: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao... read more

Although I'm most likely being biased here because this happens to be my native country, I genuinely believe that the Philippines is a very beautiful nation that is guaranteed to captivate the attention of many tourists from all over the world.

The territory features many different landmarks that unfold an intriguing history within them, great landscapes such as the Banaue Rice Terraces, and distinctly wonderful beaches that offer great relaxation time, typically warm climates, and many more. Visit this country. You won't be disappointed!

2 Japan Japan is an island country in East Asia in the Pacific Ocean. It lies off the eastern coast of the Asia Mainland (east of China, Korea, Russia) and stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and near Taiwan in the southwest... read more

Very cultured and beautiful country. Nice landscape with lots to see and do. Lack of English proficiency is a problem. Polite and friendly people. Great food. Fun country! Love Japan.

Just visit this country. Don't doubt the appearance of this country. This country is a perfect place to visit.

Lovely country with great food, people, and lots to see and do. Four distinct seasons. One of the most beautiful countries in the world. A great mix of outdoors and cityscape.

3 Indonesia Indonesia, officially the Republic of Indonesia, is a country in Southeast Asia. Ruled by the Dutch for over 300 years and Japan for 3 years and 6 months, the country gained independence in 1945, or exactly in 17th August 1945. Jakarta is the capital city, located in the island of Java. Major languages... read more

For sure, Indonesia is the most beautiful country in Asia, and in my opinion, it ranks in the top 5 of the world's best. The country is full of beautiful islands, volcanoes, temples, and a mix of various ethnicities.

The food is great, and the locals are the friendliest in the world, genuine, and always ready to help you. It's absolutely a safe country to travel to. I recommend visiting Bali, which includes Gili's, Nusa Penida, and Nusa Lembongan, as well as Flores (Pulau Padar, Komodo Island, Pink Beach, Waerebo Village), Sumba, Raja Ampat, Papua, Yogjakarta for the temples, Sulawesi, Sumatra, and the 1000 islands north of Jakarta.

However, the capital Jakarta is terrible, with crazy traffic every day. You absolutely need a motorcycle to get around.

4 India India, officially known as the Republic of India, is a country located in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area and the most populous country, with over 1.4 billion people. Additionally, it is the most populous democracy in the world... read more

The country where one can travel to snowy mountains and vast plains, to deserts and tropical rain forests, to plateaus and beautiful coastal areas. The diversity of the ever-so-large cultures and traditions has given the country a set of flavors unique only to this place.

Most people, including taxi drivers, have basic knowledge of English, making it easier for tourists to get around the country.

I am very close to my country, and I think that India is the most beautiful country in the world. No country is as beautiful as India.

It's important to note that being an Indian is an honor and I am proud to be an Indian, like every Indian. Today, in the world, many Europeans, Americans, and simply everyone likes India, so it's evident that India becomes more and more beautiful every year. Long live INDIA.

5 Thailand Thailand, historically known as Siam and officially the Kingdom of Thailand, is a country in Southeast Asia, located at the centre of Mainland Southeast Asia, spanning 513,120 square kilometres (198,120 sq mi), with a population of almost 70 million. The country is bordered to the north by Myanmar and... read more

Thailand can't be just rank four! They're beautiful. Thai girls show a beautiful stunning half-smile. Actually, I think they should be ranked as high as the Philippines. Thai girls are sexy and charming.

I've already been to Thailand and I can prove it. Every street I visited there, I saw a beautiful girl with stunning Caucasian-shaped eyes. Some of them are light-skinned and almost look like Vietnamese, while others are exotic. Thais are beautiful to both white and Asian men. So I vote for Thailand.

Nice spicy food and great beaches. Traffic in Bangkok is terrible, though. Friendly people. Nice country. Definitely one of the top Asian travel destinations.

6 Pakistan Pakistan was established in 1947 and is located in South Asia. Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. Karachi, Lahore, and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are the official languages of Pakistan. The world's second-highest peak (K-2) and ninth highest peak (Nanga Parbat)... read more

Pakistan has Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan, which are called heaven on earth. Pakistan has beaches, wildlife, waterfalls, and hill stations. The country offers travel to snowy mountains, glaciers, vast plains, deserts, tropical rain forests, plateaus, and beautiful coastal areas.

It has one of the highest mountain ranges in the world and the 2nd highest peak, K2. Pakistan has 5 to 7 of the highest peaks out of the 18 in the world. Other than that, Pakistan has the world's deepest port and one of the oldest civilizations in Mohenjo-Daro. All weather seasons are observed here, and it has the most welcoming people in the world.

7 Sri Lanka Sri Lanka, officially the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka and known from the beginning of British colonial rule until 1972 as Ceylon, is an island country in South Asia near south-east India.

Sri Lanka is a heaven/paradise on earth. One of the most wonderful countries in Asia. The Sri Lankan people are very nice and helpful. I can only say positive things about Sri Lanka.

I send my condolences for the victims of that cowardly attack. It was nasty and unforgivable! I wish the injured people will recover. I will pray for Sri Lanka! God help Sri Lanka!

Sri Lanka is truly a very beautiful country with different types of weather conditions. It's truly amazing that such a small country has so many variations.

8 Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Interesting culture and friendly environment. Da Nang has nice beaches and is a good place to unwind. Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi have a lot of history but can get boring pretty fast. The country has the potential to grow into a cosmopolitan country.

I am Vietnamese American, and I saw pictures from my mom and dad's photo album. Vietnam surely has stunning views of its beaches, rivers, and cities!

Rustic with a historic grandeur. Nice beaches in Central Vietnam, Da Nang. Interesting culture and nice people.

9 China China, officially known as the People's Republic of China, is a country located in East Asia. It is the world's second most populous country, boasting a population of more than 1.4 billion. China spans five geographical time zones and shares its borders with 14 countries, making it second only to Russia... read more

China is, in my opinion, one of the top ten most beautiful countries on the planet. The western side has deserts and the highest places on earth. The eastern side, despite having most of China's population, has beautiful rivers and forests that stretch over the horizon.

As a four-thousand-year-old civilization, China has a lot of historical sites. As a huge country, China has a variety of natural scenery, from Lijiang and Jiuzhaigou to the Inner Mongolia grassland and the ice and snow in Harbin.

Moreover, China has a world-class transportation infrastructure. High-speed rail can make travel very fast and comfortable, allowing you to reach anywhere in China.

10 Maldives Maldives, officially the Republic of Maldives, is an archipelagic country located in Southern Asia, situated in the Indian Ocean. It lies southwest of Sri Lanka and India, about 750 kilometres (470 miles; 400 nautical miles) from the Asian continent's mainland. The chain of 26 atolls stretches from... read more

Okay, let's be serious. What is better than the white sandy beaches with the most beautiful shades of blue sea? The sun shining high and making the scene even more amazing? Maldives is special, and I've seen it.

Maldives was really beautiful. Should be number 1. The sunny side of life.

It's the sunny side of life, assumed to be heaven on earth, so why 6th?

The Contenders
11 Mongolia Mongolia is a landlocked unitary sovereign state in East Asia. Its area is roughly equivalent with the historical territory of Outer Mongolia, and that term is sometimes used to refer to the current state.

Mongolia, with its nomadic history and deep culture, has a unique and rare beauty. Though it lacks tropical beaches, its vast steppes convey a feeling of simplicity that cannot be found in any other region of the world. Additionally, its amazingly beautiful nomadic culture fits perfectly with the setting it has developed.

Mongolia is extremely magical and such a serene place. People are very intelligent, affable, hardworking, and respectful. Their traditions, arts, and foods are amazing!

12 Nepal Nepal, officially the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal, is a sovereign state located in South Asia.

It is home of the famous Gurkhas whose name come from a small district in Nepal called Gorkha. The name Gorkha came from the legendary Indian sage Gorakhnath who did spent later part of his... read more

Birthplace of Lord Gautam Buddha, unique shaped flag in the world, Mount Everest, etc. Nepal is a small world in itself. It is not just for hiking and trekking, and you'll only know when you step into Nepal.

A land of only 30 million people but vastly diversified. Cultures, traditions, and festivals are amazing. The food is great, and the people are great and peace-loving. In fact, everything is great.

Kathmandu is the capital city. Pokhara, Bandipur, Chitwan, Mustang, Ghandruk, and Kathmandu are some of the visiting sites. Heaven is a myth. Nepal is real. A very warm welcome to you to Nepal. #exploreNepal

13 Taiwan Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a country in East Asia, at the junction of the East and South China Seas in the northwestern Pacific Ocean, with the People's Republic of China (PRC) to the northwest, Japan to the northeast, and the Philippines to the south. The territories controlled... read more

Nice country. Underdeveloped though. Central and Southern Taiwan have very nice natural landscapes that offer great outdoor activities. Taipei, however, can be a little boring and mundane.

Taiwanese people are very friendly and honest though. Taiwan needs and can do a lot more to catch up with other major Asian cities like Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

Laid-back yet interesting night markets where you get lots of delicious hawker food late into the night. Very friendly people. Nice hiking tracks and nature. Unfortunately, there's not much in terms of attractions, hence not much to do in the city.

14 South Korea South Korea, officially the Republic of Korea (ROK), is a country in East Asia, constituting the southern part of the Korean Peninsula and sharing a land border with North Korea. Its western border is formed by the Yellow Sea, while its eastern border is defined by the Sea of Japan. South Korea claims... read more

Nice country with an interesting culture overall. Inconvenient, though, and lacking in interesting things to do. Attractions are too far apart, and transportation is not that great except in the city center. Koreans keep to themselves. The city is not cosmopolitan despite the hype. Hong Kong, Singapore, and Tokyo are much more cosmopolitan and international.

South Korea is a paradise. Well-developed, gorgeous, alluring, and so on. In my opinion, the best country in Asia from any aspect - beauty, progress, education, and economy.

15 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the Juche leader Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung... read more
16 Myanmar Myanmar (formerly Burma) is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country's largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains... read more

I am Chinese and live in Myanmar. In my opinion, Myanmar is the most beautiful country in the world. Although the country is the least developed, I believe it will develop faster in the future.

Everyone in Myanmar believes they will have a better life in the future because it has very beautiful scenery and they preserve their historical sites well. They are willing to give their lives to protect these precious historical places.

This country should be in the top 3 because of its beauty. Nowadays, almost every country doesn't have natural beauty anymore, but some may have. Most of them are man-made. And not only Bagan - if you go to upper Myanmar, there are still many more beautiful places! No country can compete with its beauty in the world.

17 Bangladesh Bangladesh, officially the People's Republic of Bangladesh, is a country in South Asia. It is the eighth-most populous country in the world, with a population exceeding 163 million people in an area of either 148,460 square kilometres (57,320 sq mi) or 147,570 square kilometres (56,980 sq mi), making... read more

Bangladesh - a land of sheer natural beauty! Starting from the longest exquisite sandy beach of Cox's Bazaar to the roar of the Royal Bengal Tiger, Bangladesh has a little bit of everything.

Besides the uninterrupted gifts of nature, you'll get to explore numerous archaeological and architectural wonders and experience the diverse ethnicity throughout the country.

The best thing you will experience, and will definitely spice up your entire visit, is the hospitality of Bangladeshi people.

18 Malaysia Malaysia is a Southeast Asian country occupying the Malaysian Peninsula and part of the island of Borneo. It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such... read more

Malaysia has a diverse set of different lands and beaches. It's the perfect place to take photos. Its landmarks, like the Petronas Twin Towers, Merdeka 118, and Tugu Negara, are spectacular feats.

So true. Malaysia has developed amazingly well in the past several years. The people are very nice and clever too. Malaysia has many interesting places to visit. The people, culture, and religion make Malaysia the best place to visit.

Malaysia is a multicultural country. People there are so friendly and humble. There are a lot of beaches to visit here.

19 Iran Iran, also known as Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a sovereign state in Western Asia. The capital city is Teheran and the major city is also Tehran. The country's official language is Persian... read more

Iran is one of the most beautiful countries in the world.

It should be at the top of the list.

20 Singapore Singapore, officially known as the Republic of Singapore, is a sovereign island city-state in maritime Southeast Asia. It is situated approximately one degree of latitude (137 kilometers or 85 miles) north of the equator, off the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. It borders the Strait of Malacca... read more

Nice and polite people and a very clean and safe environment. It is a good travel destination to chill and unwind for a few days. You get the serenity of offshore islands within 30 minutes from the hustle and bustle of a metropolitan city center.

The transport infrastructure is very efficient and relatively cheap too. There is a great variety of food from Chinese to Indian, Malay to Western at multiple price points. There are lots of international and local events and activities for individual travelers and families.

Small but interesting country. Worth visiting more than once. Oh yes, and Singlish is cute and interesting though I don't get most of it!

21 Bhutan Bhutan, officially the Kingdom of Bhutan, is a landlocked country in South Asia at the eastern end of the Himalayas. It is bordered by China to the north and India to the south. Nepal and Bangladesh are located in proximity to Bhutan but do not share a land border. The country has a population of over... read more

23 Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun. Lebanon is situated in the middle of the fertile crescent on the eastern Mediterranean sea overlooking Europe, North Africa... read more

From the beautiful snow-capped mountains to the incredible cedar forests and the amazing Mediterranean beaches, you can't overlook Lebanon as one of the most beautiful Asian nations. Just Google some pictures of Lebanon, and you will be surprised. Lebanon is way too underrated as a beautiful country. Plus, the people are very nice and welcoming.

24 Russia Russia, or the Russian Federation (RF), is a transcontinental country spanning Eastern Europe and Northern Asia. It is the largest country in the world by area, covering over 17,125,191 square kilometres (6,612,073 sq mi), and encompassing one-eighth of Earth's inhabitable landmass.
